    Expert Rating

    4.5 (Excellent)
    19 City / 28 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 Kia Cadenza OVERVIEW

    Introduced for 2014, the Cadenza was noteworthy for its sporty appearance as well as luxury-level comfort/convenience features, placing Kia into an additional vehicle category. Despite being a full-size near-luxury sedan, the Cadenza demonstrated that it didn’t have to drive like one: more like a smaller model, and clearly unlike large cars of yesteryear.

    What's New for 2016

    A new Base model joins the 2016 lineup, priced $3,000 lower than the Premium trim level and $11,000 lower than the SX Limited (SXL). All versions now have a standard navigation system.

    Choosing Your Kia Cadenza

    Kia installs the same powertrain in all Cadenzas. Producing 293 horsepower, the 3.3-liter V6 engine teams with a six-speed automatic transmission that incorporates Sportmatic manual shifting. Fuel estimates from the EPA come in at 19 mpg in city driving, 28 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg in combined driving.


    Even at the Base trim level, you’ll find a long list of standard features, such as leather seat trim and a navigation system with 8-inch touchscreen and integrated rear-camera display. Also standard are heated power front seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, foglamps, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, tilt/telescopic steering column, pushbutton start, lighted glovebox, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Kia’s UVO eServices infotainment system and an eight-speaker, 550-watt audio system are included.


    Now equipped with a standard panoramic sunroof, the midlevel Cadenza comes with paddle shifters, rain-sensing wipers, a heated steering wheel, power rear sunshade, and backup warning system. The Infinity 550-watt surround-sound audio system has 12 speakers.

    Two option packages allow you to add to the Premium features. The Luxury Plus Package includes such extras as Nappa leather seat trim, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated outboard rear seats, power rear sunshades, HID headlights, and blind-spot detection. A Technology Package (which requires purchase of the Luxury Plus Package) adds lane-departure warning, hydrophobic front-door glass, an electronic parking brake, adaptive cruise control, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

    SX Limited

    Topping the line, the SXL adds a considerable helping of additional features, including a surround-view monitor, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, and Nappa leather upholstery. Fitted with a unique grille, the SX Limited includes 19-inch chrome alloy wheels, high-intensity-discharge headlights, LED foglamps, a driver’s seat/mirror/steering-wheel memory, ventilated front seats, heated outboard rear seats, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning. You'll also find some additional chrome and woodgrained interior accents, an analog clock, and a rear-seat USB charging port.

    CarsDirect Tip

    If you’re ready for the feel of luxury and the convenience of the latest technology, without paying the hefty price of some top-tier imports, the Cadenza might be a candidate for your shopping list. We recommend either the new, competitively-priced Base model, or the also-reasonable Premium edition.
